The Ⓣ's Definition Of Reliability

By on

Subway reliability is the percent of customers who wait no longer than the scheduled time between trains.

First of all, I can't imagine how they'd even measure such a statistic. To do so, would seem to require a continuous counting of the number of people waiting at each platform. The has an extensive system of security cameras, but I'd be surprised if they're capable of doing that.

Their "reliability" number takes nothing else into consideration, including whether or not a train arrives at its destination in a timely manner. As every rider knows, merely boarding a vehicle is no assurance of a reliable commute.
